The Community Sustainability Commission (CSC)
The purpose of the CSC is to educate, advocate, and provide oversight for integrated solutions that seek a sustainable equilibrium for economic, ecological, and social health and well being both now and in the future. The 11 member CSC was established in 2009 to evaluate and prioritize Benicia’s strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make key recommendations regarding the City’s Climate Action Plan. The CSC is also charged with implementing the CAP’s measures and monitoring its effectiveness. This broad mandate includes recommendations for allocations of Good Neighbor Steering Committee Settlement Agreement funds for projects that meet certain criteria set out in the Agreement.
